Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has vowed that his state will never be part of Biafra, saying Ebonyi was better off in a fair and equitable Nigeria.
Umahi stated this at the Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki, on Thursday, during a reception organised for him after declaring his presidential bid in Abuja.
He said, “If anybody tells you about Biafra, Ebonyi State will never be part of Biafra.
“We are not going anywhere. We won’t. We will continue to appeal and dialogue to be treated fairly and equitably like other regions of Nigeria.”
Speaking on his ambition he added, “Let nobody be afraid of the presidency of an Igbo man. The Igbo man is a builder and not a destroyer. There is no Igbo man that will be the President of this country and would like to divide or destroy it because we have investments everywhere.”
“Some enemies of the South-East say if we become President we will divide the country. How will we divide the country? We have investments everywher.” he said.
